Having secured qualification for the Round of 16, Real Madrid will look to seal top spot in Group F against RB Leipzig.

Real Madrid, unbeaten in 16 games this season, travel to Red Bull Arena to take on RB Leipzig in yet another top of the table fixture in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League.

With 10 points in 4 games, Los Blancos have secured their place in the Round of 16. They are most likely going to end up as the group winners, but still need at least a point to end up winners of Group F mathematically.

Leipzig lie in second place in the group with six points, and will need a positive result should Shakhtar Donetsk defeat Celtic in the other Group F fixture. They will take motivation from the fact that Karim Benzema, Fede Valverde, and Luka Modrić have missed the trip to Leipzig.
